reading books gives growth to your sense of imagination. You cannot put together an idea with having the ability of critical thinking. Books are tools and forms of entertainment, but they are not original. Books are tools to give one the capability to accumulate an original idea or thought.

Matthew Chapter 6:

19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

I've been trying to adhere to the ethic that you need to fix yourself before you try to save the next person, or society, or the whole world.

Be more self-sufficient. Whether it be monetarily, materially, energetically, mentally spiritually etc. The more you need other things, and other people the weaker and less elegant your ethic is. This includes the desire to save the world, or 'fix the system'.

If I can't overcome my petty vices I can't expect the next man to and I can't really blame the people that provide the means to it

If everyone just looked towards themselves and their self sufficiency, not needing all these prosthetics externalities to keep their desire going the world would be much better without any of us really having to approach it as a whole.

Discipline is of utmost importance to revolution. Without power, all we can have is the power over ourselves. If you don't have this as a start you can't get anywhere on a greater scale.

to take what you need and nothing more?


ive come across a lot of dudes that can talk revolution
but
cant put down the herb
and work at starbucks to support they habit

they want to see equality
but
not when tomorrow is the release date for the new joint on xbox

cant pay 45 cents for a cup of rice to learn how to cook a meal
but
they can pay $5 at fast food and fill up they belly with trash

add on
It may be natural of humans to be full of desire, greed and so on, but the thing that all of us forget is that there are different aspects to our nature. The aforementioned aspects being the very lowest and most animalistic. The Taoists say that we need to be, "detached", "desireless". Most of us may thing that this leads to being a walking zombie, but it's quite the opposite. If you quiet the mind and control the heart, then you gain clarity. The heart births all emotions, the mind is the seat of the soul. Since most of our minds can't stay in one place and most of our hearts don't know the difference between love and lust, needs and wants, temporary and lasting, then you get what we have today; a world full of people who have no sense of direction and even if they have a sense of direction, they're driving in circles.

So I say yes, reject luxury and desire in any form. The greedy search for spiritual power is just as dangerous as the search for worldly power. This is where you get Nazism, Islamic Extremism, Zionism, Klansmen, etc. It's about balance. To give up the glitz and glitter of the material world is no more than clearing your mind and listening to your soul. That's why the ancients didn't need a bunch of, "stuff". They searched within and only rarely depended on what was without.
